Bored To Death

Published by at 12:13 am under Fun!,MP3's,Video


I’m quite fond of the new HBO series Bored To Death. When I heard that Zach Galifinakis (one of my favorite comedians) and Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore & I Heart Huckabees) were going to be in a new series, I knew that it was probably going to be great, but I was surprised by just how great it actually is. Is it bad that I just want it to be next Sunday already?

Schwartzman’s role as an author/unlicensed private investigator seriously couldn’t have been cast better. And this show has made my affection for Galifinakis grow even stronger, which I didn’t think was possible-his dry sense of humor is more subtle than in his other projects, and I love it. Ted Danson is hilarious as well, and Jim Jarmeush guest starred in the third episode!

To make things even better, Bored to Death jumped on the “good indie music in background” bandwagon. However, instead of trying to “make” every indie band out there, like Grey’s Anatomy, it plays less bands more frequently.  You can see the list here.

HBO just renewed Bored to Death for a second season. According to /Film, “the series also features guest appearances from John Hodgman (Daily Show, Mac ads), Patton Oswalt, Kirsten Wiig, Parker Posey, Bebe Neuwirth, Oliver Platt, Olivia Thirlby. And if you’re not sold yet… Paul Feig, of Freaks and Geeks, The Office and Arrested Development fame, directs a couple episodes.”

Episode 1:

(MP3) Kaiser Cartel – Favorite Song (Live from Breakthru Radio EP)


(MP3) Andrew Bird – Lull


Episode 4:

(MP3) La Strada -Loved You All Along


The trailer doesn’t really do the show justice, but here you go anyway.

    Hey Melodie, I just spent a few minutes looking up what song that was from episode four because it sounded familiar to me.


    Au Revoir Simone – All or Nothing

    All products have a seal of authentication and guarantee every consumer that they
